No hdmi sound on b+


#1

Have raspberry pi b+ and have installed retro pi on one sd card and Ubuntu-mate on the other
As you may suspect retropie sound through hdmi working and sound on Ubuntu-mate is not.

I am looking for a few tips as I am have followed many of forums but still no further.
Last attempt was in terminal - sudo amixer cast numid=3 2

I know nothing about raspberry pi, but I think UM18.04 did a poor job with sound management, especially with those who frequently use HDMI. Every time I use HDMI I need to manually change the hardware sound settings. I need to do the same when reverting back to a non HDMI environment. Not sure if you have the same settings to change.

Have you switched the sound from headphone jack to HDMI using raspi-config ?
